Abbey’s Productions continues to achieve consecutive successes by producing television series admired and watched by millions of viewers in the Arab world. During the holy month of Ramadan this year, the company topped the Ramadan race through the much-loved series Manzel 12 and Saqata Sahwan series.
Garnering a premium and advanced position on global digital platforms and on GCC and Arab TV stations via broadcast, Manzel 12, starring many popular regional actors presented a dramatised social concern within an exciting storyline. Saqata Sahwan also achieved a notable position among the most watched series on social media, dealing with societal realities in a light-hearted, comic context via another stellar performance by its cast.
Abbey’s Productions was established in 2019 in Kuwait, by Sheikha Abrar Khaled Al-Sabah. The company aims to produce works for television that achieve a positive impact on viewers by presenting realistic content reflecting life in the Arabian Gulf and formulating it in a thoughtful outline using innovative technology and tools in television production. Despite the recent founding of Abbey's Productions, in less than three years the company has managed to produce some of the most important and widely acclaimed drama series in the Gulf and Arab world at large, broadcast on screens by mbc channels group, Rotana channels group, Shahid.net streaming platform, Dubai TV, Kuwait TV, along with other esteemed TV stations, achieving record breaking viewership numbers.
Sheikha Abrar Khaled Al-Sabah, Chairperson of the Board of Directors of Abbey's Productions, comments: "I personally supervise all details in every production we present, and I am keen to reach viewers from different segments of society and age groups by working closely with renowned directors and writers. We work diligently to research our content and scripts that simulate our reality and our lives in the Arab Gulf region.
"The Arab viewers are notable by their awareness and ability to consume unique productions, and we are happy with the success of our work and achievements.
